Back from the beach

Got back late last from a couple of days in Hua Hin.  We had a great time just hanging out at the beach, first in Hua Hin, and then yesterday at Cha Am.  Hua Hin beach closed down all the tables and umbrellas on Wednesday for some reason so we drove over the Cha Am instead.  I'm thinking it might be the band on chair imposed by the military on public beaches.  Hua Hin and Cha Am are in two difference provinces (Petchaburi and Prachaup Khiri Khan) so they may be enforcing them a bit differently.

One of B's friends and her family came down to meet us also so we had a great big table of food and the kids got together to share some sand and surf.  For Sevenwinds, a log series of naps on the comfy beach chairs was in order.

I noticed that the beaches are pretty full.  Lots of foreign guests in town in Hua Hin.  Cha Am is more of a beach for the locals and the food and accommodations are geared towards Thai visitors from Bangkok or other parts of the country.  The beach at Cha Am is not as pretty and the waves are larger.  But tables and food are cheaper and there is a strip of businesses and restrooms right across the street from the beach.

Don't know why, but Thais always wear all their clothes when going swiming

Marina had a lot of fun again, this time with B playing among the waves.  She did not want to get out of the water even when she was so cold that she was shivering.  But that's how kids are, they go gangbusters the whole day long....wearing out both parents.

Tables are pretty densely packed at ChaAm - Why I prefer our secret spot near Hua Hin

Most of the food is pretty good if you order from the people who run the beach tables and umbrellas.  I would avoid the touts that bring around food as most of stuff has been around for some time as they carry it around all over the beach until it gets stale.

Back in the mango today...maybe out again to the archery range or a trip out to IKEA.  Lets see how the day goes.
